Wii U owners may have already noticed, but December 2012 came and went without the promised release of Zen Studios’ outstanding pinball game, Zen Pinball 2, but the team has revealed a new release window for the game’s free-to-download platform.
Posting on the developer’s Twitter account, Zen Studios makes numerous mention of January as the month in which it’s aiming to release Zen Pinball 2 for Nintendo’s Wii U, so we’re hoping that new console owners will be able to taste glorious pinball delights in a few short weeks.
The core of Zen Pinball 2 will be available to download for free with trials for some of the game’s arcade-style pinball tables, including Marvel-themed tables. The Wii U version of the game will include a bunch of features unique to the console, including the chance to play Zen Pinball 2 solely on the GamePad touch-screen controller – find out what else you can expect to see in this version of the game, with an awesome trailer included.
Also don’t miss John Tidwell’s excellent editorial about how he discovered Zen Pinball 2 and his enjoyment of the game, and be sure to listen in to a very special El33tonline podcast speaking to John about the game, too.
